Conservative Rock

Hey, music lovers. Go get yourselves a copy of National Review, June 5, 2006 edition, page 45. John J. Miller has a list of 50 conservative rock songs. He states:

"For conservatives who enjoy rock, it isn't hard to agree with the opinion Johnny Cash expressed in 'The One on the Right Is on the Left': 'Don't go mixin' politics with the folk songs of our land / Just work on harmony and diction / Play your banjo well / And if you have political convictions, keep them to yourself.' In other words: Shut up and sing."

Miller also states:

"In several cases, the musicians are outspoken liberals. Others are notorious libertines. For the purposes of this list, however, we don't hold any of this against them."

So, I give you the list. With respect to space and what not, I won't include the descriptions of each song; you'll have to go get the mag for yourself.

Take special note of #5 on the list. It's "our song" for Husband and me.

When I click the link it just gives me your post again. Interesting how libs like Bono and Sting get front-page coverage all the time.

That's one thing I have to admit about country music stars, most of them are very patriotic.
